WHY DO I NEED A WORKERS’ COMPENSATION LAWYER?
Workers’ compensation laws were designed to enable injured workers to receive prompt medical treatment and compensation for lost wages. However, it doesn’t always work that way. Employers and insurance companies frequently deny injured workers’ requests for damages. That’s why it benefits you to have someone on your side protecting your best interests.
Our workers’ compensation attorneys have the resources and experience it takes to win, and we’re committed to fighting injustice. If you’ve been injured on the job, don’t wait to ask for help and don’t get pushed around by your employer. We’ve helped thousands of people in Massachusetts get the help they needed, and we’re here to help you.
CAN I AFFORD A WORKERS’ COMPENSATION LAWYER?
Yes, you can afford a lawyer who cares. We provide all our services related to Workers’ Compensation claims on a contingency basis, which means we do not earn any fees unless you succeed in getting compensation.
Our lawyers and staff care about you. We understand no one goes to an attorney because things are going well. We make hospital and home visits to people who cannot travel.
WORKERS’ COMPENSATION IN MASSACHUSETTS
Workers’ compensation benefits in Massachusetts are made up of five basic categories:
Workers’ compensation is a wage replacement system that provides weekly benefits while you are disabled from work. Your weekly check is based on 60% of your gross wages.
The insurance company for your employer must pay any medical bills that are adequate and reasonable health care services for the treatment of your injury. This includes everything from ambulance rides to prescription receipts, and everything in between.
Payment for scarring and disfigurement
You are entitled to be paid for any scar that is on your hands, face or neck only. You can be paid for non scar-based disfigurement (i.e.: a broken nose) no matter where it is on your body.
Payment for permanent loss of function
You are entitled to be paid for any permanent loss of function to almost any part of your body.
Payment for mileage to your doctors
You are entitled to be reimbursed for mileage to and from your medical providers.
